Filkin’s Drift – Welsh/English Folk Duo’s Sustainable Walking Tour of the Wales Coastal Path, CERDD//ED comes to Barry

  1. Welsh/English Folk Duo Filkin’s Drift are Chris Roberts from Cardiff and Seth Bye from Glos. embarking on a sustainable walking tour of the Wales coastal path

Chris Roberts from Cardiff and Seth Bye, from Gloucestershire are folk duo Filkin’s Drift blending fiddle and guitar with close vocal harmonies.

CERDD // ED, an 870-mile walking tour of the Wales Coast Path, is a radical approach to sustainable touring. With the climate emergency sharply in focus and people looking for new ways of connecting post-covid, it is clear that the music industry needs fresh and imaginative approaches to touring. Folk duo ‘Filkin’s Drift’ have found an answer in the ancient Welsh bardic tradition. In the Welsh language, ‘Cerdd’ means music and ‘Cerdded’ means to walk. To Filkin’s Drift, this suggests an intrinsic connection between the acts of roaming and creating music. Along the way, the duo will collect songs, stories, and tunes to incorporate into their gigs, weaving together a tapestry of shared experiences of the Welsh coast.
They will be releasing their debut EP Rembard’s Retreat to coincide with the start of the tour.
The project is supported by Help Musicians and Fusion Gig Bags. It is also raising money for the charity Live Music Now.
